Well Tommorow She Goes To The Shop
 
Well, Ive been pondering getting some new tunes for my truck from troyer since the ones i have just dont impress me. But i always hated the idea of waiting 2 months to get the tunes. So enter plan B. One of my buddies here in edmonton knows some guys who started a shop called Horsepower solutions. They actually went down into the states to take some courses on dyno tuning vehicles. So instead of emailing back and forth with troyer, i have decided to just take my truck in and get it dyno tuned. They are going to be using a program called HP tuners, which means the Xcal 2 is goin up for sale. They seem to have a pretty good track record as the guy who will be doing the tuning has a 10s street truck. So im hoping to get some video of it as they will be doing a few baseline runs and then spending a couple hours goin through it. So ill try and post the dyno graphs and a video if i can. Im really looking forward to it.

What kind of gains are you looking at?

The biggest thing im hoping for is better low rpm response. I have some other mods already on the truck, so im hoping they can get everything working well together. Ideally im hoping to see maybe 10-15hp but that may be shooting a bit high, a little bit more torque as i pull a quad trailer alot, and maybe 2-4mpg if things go well. Most things im pretty good with, just hoping they can round out the shortcommings to make for one nice package.

I know what you mean, I'm not overly happy with my low RPM response either. You should be able to get at less 7 to 10hp easy, but heres to hoping. :happy116:

Im probably gonna just go with a 87 octane tune, as when we go camping 91 isnt always available, plus the fuel costs kinda keep me away from 91 usually.

I'm waiting on my Gryphone programming
All 3 levels are 87 octane

Ya this one essentially just rewrites the factory comp so you only get the one tune. I thought about going with a 91 tune, but didnt think it was worth the extra gas costs. And these guys seem to know their stuff so im sure they will be able to get a bit more out of my truck even with 87.
